(Whilst Avifood Spray should not affect the eyes, we advise that sprays should not be directed at an animal’s face.)
During the therapy it is advised that the feathers are rinsed once every other day with Avifood Shower to remove any residue from the skin and feathers. Once use of the Spray is complete, aftercare with Avifood Shower should be continued as a regular ‘shower’ once daily for a minimum of another 4 weeks.
Composition: Distilled water; Pure Aloe Vera; Quaternary ammonium compounds; Monolaurin
The Properties of Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera contains many naturally occurring antioxidants and has recognised antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antifungal and immune-regulating properties. It has ‘cooling’ properties with most skin and feather problems being ‘warm’ disorders.
The Pain Relieving Properties of Quaternary Amines (aka quaternary ammonium compounds). These are naturally occurring compounds produced from protein breakdown and are also manufactured for use in commercial pain relief products. Quaternary amines have a strong positive electrical charge which helps correct the electrical imbalance in damaged cell membranes, dulling pain perception. These amines are able to pass through the skin (transdermal) and offer pain relief directly at the site of cellular damage.
The Properties of Monolaurin. Monolaurin is the non-toxic, inactive form of the saturated fatty acid, lauric acid. On contact with the skin monolaurin naturally breaks down to active lauric acid. Fatty acids are well known for their antiviral and antimicrobial activity and lauric acid is recognised as having the strongest of these properties.
